Notes:
When the Wellington school board needed space for an athletic field, Dr. Bartlett bought the land in 1910. In 1923, the school outgrew the land. "Bartlett's Park" soon became Bartlett Arboretum. The arboretum began with native plantings, but the collection was gradually increased to include plants from his travels. Following Bartlett's death, his son, Glenn, a landscape architect, returned to Kansas to be a full-time caretaker of the grounds until his death in 1976.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Dr. Walter E. Bartlett (former owner and founder, 1910); and Glenn Bartlett (landscape architect, 1936-1976).
